The Last Frontier Adventure cruise aboard the Admiralty Dream was fantastic from start to finish! This small-ship cruise line has figured out how to wow its passengers while providing opportunities on the Last Frontier Adventure cruise to view wild life (sea-going, air-going and land loving), to get up close and personal with glaciers, to learn about Tlingit history and culture and about the flora and fauna of Alaska. The staff is over-the-top service oriented, diverse, well-educated and fun to be around! They appear proud to be members of the crew, respectful of each other and the passengers and happy to be of service. Food is well-prepared and the menu always contains a range of offerings to appeal to every pallet, including special dietary needs such as vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.
Since all port visits and shore excursions are included in the cost of the cruise, once you are met at the airport by cruise line staff, you can relax and participate on the exciting on shore or on water experiences that will provide you treasured memories, ample photo opportunities and valuable educational experiences.
The ship, Admiralty Dream, is small enough (we had approximately 50 passengers and 21 staff/crew aboard) that we could go into the more narrow passages that large cruise ships avoid, could get close to shore out in the wilds and could easily stop to enjoy wildlife viewing from the decks. Our cabin, while small, was well-lit, in excellent condition and working order and had comfortable beds.
All in all the cruise was an "exceeded expectations" experience with only one caveat - be certain to book a cabin in the forward portion of the ship and away from air circulation vents to ensure a quieter ambiance in your cabin.
located in the aft of the ship - so noisier than cabins located more forward in the ship; cabin was in excellent condition and beds are comfortable
